The iPhone 4 Rides a Kite

I am presently on vacation at the beach with the family. Bethany Beach, Delaware. Yesterday it was extremely windy and I flew my sort-of box kite that can only fly in high winds. And, then it occurred to me — why not tape my iPhone 4 to the kite?!

So I did.

I taped up all of the nooks and crannies of the device, and ended up having to reposition it a few times to allow the kite to actually fly. And I ran out of tape, so I ended up with it flopping about WILDLY, so I took a few stills from the video and assembled them in the following video. I want to mount it better (I have more tape now), but the wind was mild today. So, for now, this is all I’ve got. But it’s pretty interesting. Have a look.

If I end up with a strong wind later in the week, I’ll be sure to follow up with a proper video.

    Yes, Thomas said something like OK, if you don’t mind risking your iPhone. I remarked that you probably didn’t think it the worst thing in the world to run down to the Apple Store.
